Print pdf file

P: n/a
I have a pdf file in a table as an OLE object. I want print it but not
display with Acrobat.
I already found on this news a solution as this:

Dim risp
risp=Shell("C:\TuoPercorso\AcroRd32.exe /p /h
C:\PercorsoFile\TuoFile.PDF")

but is necessary a path on disk.
Is there someone that know how do it with an OLE object?

Since something has to capture print output and convert it to pdf format,
there is no way it can be done with an OLE object. Some external program has
to be involved. If you jsut wanted to save money, though, use RedMon
(http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/redmon/) with Ghostscript for Windows
(http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/). It takes about an hour to decipher all the
instructions and get it set up, but it works prefectly after that. It can
also do -much- more than just make pdfs.
